Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

5118. O Lord, My Earnest Cry

1. O Lord, my earnest cry
Thy listening ear has heard;
With Thy salvation answer me,
And I will keep Thy Word.
At early dawn I prayed,
Thy promises my trust;
At night I thought upon Thy Word,
Most holy and most just.

2. O hear me in Thy grace,
In mercy quicken me;
The wicked plan to do me harm,
But they are far from Thee.
Thou, Lord, art near to me,
And true are Thy commands;
Of old Thy testimonies show
Thy truth eternal stands.
